Why free membership?

As the cultural heart of the University of Michigan, UMMA is open and accessible to all. Since 2017, UMMA Free Membership provides visitors with ongoing opportunities to deeply engage in the arts and become stakeholders in the Museum’s future. Rather than paying membership dues, please consider making an annual gift to UMMA. We rely on gifts from individuals to support UMMA exhibitions and over 900 public programs every year. All donations are 100% tax deductible.
